Blacketts Skin & Laser Clinic

The Clinic is located within Blacketts Medical Practice in the centre of Darlington. It has a separate waiting area and treatments are carried out in comfortable, private consulting rooms. Plenty of car parking is available and we are within easy walking distance of the town centre.

Whether you are seeking to restore or enhance your natural looks or treat a specific skin problem, we will do our best to help you.

Professional Staff

Our highly experienced team of doctors and therapists are dedicated to providing you with high-quality, non-surgical cosmetic treatments within a regulated, professional environment.

We use the most clinically advanced products and the latest aesthetic treatments on the market to obtain the best results for our clients, whether this is providing effective solutions for hair removal, skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction or tackling conditions such as acne or rosacea.

As part of this process, we offer an initial free assessment when we will carry out a detailed consultation and discuss the most appropriate course of treatments. This will be tailor-made to your individual requirements and we will endeavour to explain all procedures in detail and answer any of your questions. It is always our policy to give good, honest advice and put you, as the client, at the heart of our service.
